University of Salford
Parasitology and Parasites & Vectors
Geoff Hide educated at Edinburgh University gaining a BSc in Biological Sciences with Honours in Genetics and went on to study for a PhD in the Institute of Animal Genetics at Edinburgh with Professor Andy Tait. Here I became interested in molecular approaches to the epidemiology of parasites.Dr.Geoff Hide went on to do postdoctoral research at the Wellcome Unit (now Centre) of Molecular Parasitology at the University of Glasgow to work on both molecular epidemiology and cell signaling in parasites.Dr.Geoff Hide appointed Lecturer, University of Salford in 1998, Reader in 2001 and Professor in August 2004 where I have been able to develop an exciting research portfolio.
Geoff Hide research interests are in molecular epidemiology of parasites with major projects including a long term interest in trypanosomes . His current projects in this area based around developing a detailed understanding of mobile genetic elements as tools for epidemiology and on using molecular approaches to investigate host-parasite interactions in relation to the health of African cattle. He conduct this work in collaboration with scientists at the University of Edinburgh.
